The local police station is located in a public plot close to the town's historical and commercial centre. It belongs to a unitary project that will also build a library and the public space between them. The position of the buildings tends to relate the opened public spaces around and it also generates a new square in front of it, from where the public entrance is produced. The private and police cars access is independent through the parallel street, one floor below.

The police station, as well as the library, shuts to the street and opens onto the new interior garden through diaphanous and transparent façades. Work spaces face the park while a brise-soleil system regulates the sun rays and provides the necessary light comfort. In the upper level a linear skylight provides natural light to the central bay and improves natural crossed ventilation during intermediate seasons.

Ventilated façades with polymer concrete, green roof, two fields of photovoltaics and solar thermal collectors, the study of the glazing composition and the brise-soleil for its solar protection, reduce the energy consumption of the building more than 49% in relation to a equivalent building.
